The Coronavirus is Everywhere - Wet Plates with Modified Waterhouse Stops

4/02/2020 ISO 1200 Magazine 1 Comments

The coronavirus is now a part of our current lifes. Even when you do not see this virus it is all around us. Markus Hofstätter started a new wetplate art project with this thought about the covid19 topic.

 #selfisolation – In this tintype you can see the symbolic C for the coronavirus in the tree and also the limited image circle creates a C between the tree and the sky.

Watch the following video to see how he accomplished that:

This wetplate shows tree with a C shaped bokeh at the end of my empty street. It looks like the coronavirus is far away and cannot do any harm to us.

But as soon as we have a closer look at the fence, we see that it is made of little C letters. This shows the real truth about the virus – it is all around us.

With a modified Waterhouse stop for his Dallmeyer 2b Petzval lens he was able to bring a symbolical C shaped virus into his wet plates.
